  • How did the UnCuT Diamond come to be?
    After a series of life altering situations, I recognized that I had been surviving under an incomplete identity. This led me to do some soul searching and with spiritual guidance, I eventually chose to embrace my whole self. This adventure of regeneration produced my artistic identity named, The UnCuT Diamond.
  • Why name the artistic identity? Why use "UnCuT"?"
    My faith has been my foundational launching pad. I have chosen to adopt the principles of the Bible into my everyday life. Throughout the bible, there are multiple times when followers of Christ had similar transitions of life as mine and their name was changed. During my writing of "Resilient Faith", my Editor reminded me of the name I had chosen as the character to portray myself. I was motivated to research the process of a diamond from discovery through final destination. I was intrigued by the descriptions of a diamond before it's cut. It was often described as rough, flawed, unshaped and unpolished. It takes the skills of a cutter to maximize the value of an uncut diamond, producing its brilliance and best reflection of light. Need I explain more?
